Roman Reigns’ dominance as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion has been one of the highlights of WWE since 2020. Reigns has been utterly dominant and beat everyone who challenged him so far.

As previously reported, Roman Reigns is booked for the main event of WrestleMania Backlash next month. Drew McIntyre will be his opponent for the event as well, as revealed by the latest set of Friday Night Smackdown tapings.

According to Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Reigns and McIntyre will be main eventing WrestleMania Backlash as it is the most logical thing to do.

“The 4/29 Smackdown show ends with Roman Reigns coming to blows with Drew McIntyre, which has looked to have been the logical main event for the show. We don’t have it confirmed that is the main event, but had been told Reigns was as of a week ago scheduled to headline and this was the apparent angle for that.”


We’ll have to see how WWE will be booking Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre’s feud as we head towards WrestleMania Backlash next week.
